Good writing. So far, my goodness!!! A little bit of everything in this book.

Julie Achterhoff wrote an book that presents some serious exstentialist questions as she explores some very realistic consequences of humanity's impact on the world. The story itself seems to have elements of every genre: romance, mystery and speculative fiction, and yet it's a very short book, a quick read. I finished the book thinking, "How did she pull all that off in so few pages?" There was nothing scattered or co

Quantum Earth is about a team of seven metaphysicians, lead by Mel Hawkins ("Hawk") and Shauna Troy, investigating why the Earth is in peril.

In light of the tsunami, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, and other natural catastrophes, many people are wondering if Armageddon is coming for real. Would 2012 be the end of the human race, as we know it? Most importantly, are we responsible for these natural disasters? If so, are we being destroyed so the earth can replenish itself? How can we survive the

Quantum Earth – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

‘When the two women form the hotel reached the tenth and top floor they went to the beach side where there was a balcony overlooking the scene. “Oh my God!” said one. Words failed the other, for in the distance, about a mile out they could see a giant mountain of water the size of which their brains couldn’t comprehend. And it was building larger as it headed for the coast. They could still see several people way out who se

Mel Hawkins heads a team of metaphysical scientists who are searching for the possible cause of the natural disasters that seem to be happening all a

A World in Peril… but are we willing it so? Few are those who do not see the world in peril. There are few who do not have grave concerns about the future of the earth, the future of humanity, the future of sentient life. Natural disasters, unnatural disasters, what have you--they're obviously becoming more prevalent. Some say the gods, or God is angry. Some say that Earth itself is angry, or that it is going into some mode of self-preservation. These are questions that many are exploring.
Most

Past lives, spirit guides, séances, Starborn ones (Space Aliens), and a billionaire villain are all in Quantum Earth, Julie Achterhoff’s fascinating thriller. Achterhoff has added to her recipe a good amount of romance to produce a book worth reading, especially for those of us who enjoy stories with a new age slant.

This novel’s concept alone is worth the cover price. Mel Hawkins or Hawk, as he is generally called, has put together a team of open-minded scientists who are tasked to test his theo

The premise of this book sounded good, what is causing the natural disasters across the earth as we match towards 2012 and the Mayan prophecy. However it goes off in tangents, the love story is just painful and almost embarrassing to read, it would have better just to say they were a couple and ignore the cliches of how much they meant to each other and the unnecessary love scenes. One of the group is a physic who is contacting the people who died in natural disasters to see if they brought it o ...more

Fascinating Metaphysical Look at What Happens to the Human Psyche Before Disasters

The book opens with a deadly tsunami and a team of scientists on a quest to use their psychic powers to determine what if any role the conscious soul has in causing natural disasters. From flood to earthquakes the scientists interview survivors and those that didn’t make it in the hopes of saving planet earth. What starts out at first on a macrocosm level quickly gets personal as two scientists fall in love. Noah,

Achteroff's Quantum Earth challenges the reader to look at the universe and our interconnectedness. We are the problem and we are the solution. We are the collective that some say is God.

Quantum Earth is metaphysical fiction with plausible and thoughtful points.

Warning, once you pick up this book, you won't be able to set it down
